The Other Air Travel List

December 18, 2010

The government has a list of people it will not allow to board airplanes.  It’s a “no board” list separate from the “no fly” list.  USA Today reports there are thirty two people on it, and all have tuberculosis.  Reading this, I couldn’t help but think these people are being singled out for their membership in a class of people (those with tuberculosis), and I wondered if there was any sort of due process notice and hearing for the people.  That’s law school for you!
